    Hi! I am a creator of the first flash for smartphones. Yes, flash! Not constant light flashlight. :)

    Check out our product at facebook - http://www.facebook.com/Iblazr
    Or website - iblazr.com

    I am very interested in your thoughts. The product will be launched on kickstarter later this month.

    Feel free to contact us!

    Great to hear such words !

    We are still thinking what colours to choose for this product.

    I would be happy to ship the first iblazr's for review in case of successful campaign at kickstarter!

    Most excellent Vlad... :D

    You could always run a Poll thread here to judge what colours are among the favourites with our global MobiMembership... ;)

    The Poll could then be advertised and promoted across both of our social networks with benefits all round... :rog:

    Looks like a great concept. I'll have to check it out on Kickstarter when it comes out. One question would be how you plan to address the phone jack location on the iPhone 5 being on the bottom versus the top on the 4 and 4S. I forsee some problems with hands blocking the flash. I'd love to see this work out.

    We tested iblazr concept on iPhone 5, and it is working quite good with it. Our flash has 60 degrees optics which is enough to take a portrait on iPhone 5. Moreover, at some point its even good that iblazr situates quite far from camera, because that totally minimize red eye effect! Our new prototype is coming soon, I will show how iblazr is working on iPhone 5.

    WOW!!! These portraits are just gorgeous!!

    So this would be really good to have in any low light situation, correct?

    Sounds good. I always hold my phone in landscape to take photos. I can see an added advantage of the bottom mounted phone jack. In the orientation I hold my iPhone, the palm of my hand could reflect any bounced light back onto my subject. This looks amazing. I'm teaching an iphoneography class next week and will definitely be mentioning this.

    Looks like GREEN is easily the most popular choice in your Poll Vlad... :D

    Guess that's a definite then and I look forward to receiving the test sample as soon as... :rog:

    That's correct! You will be able to adjust the brightness, so the pics will not be overexposed. And many people use flash in daytime!

    Hah :) Actually, I was thinking to make limited Kickstarter addition in green color... Only 200 green iblazr's or so. What do you think?

    neat looking product, am very interested, use flash on most shots even during daylight. When in ambient light and or diffused light, often wish I could have just a little filler flash, looks like your product hits the mark :thumbs:

    It would be neat of you had a cable connection , so that you could have off camera flash, or wishful thinking a remote! The photoJojo flash can be positioned anyplace. You could even have multiple flashes.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Super idea Mike... :D

    Should be easily doable with a headphone extension lead & jack I would have thought, although the Dev should confirm hopefully... :rog:

    Thanks for your suggestion! iblazr can work as a flashlight with three brightness levels externally. And yes, you could use it with headphones extension cables.

    What a brilliant idea! I love the portrait shots. It's the kind of thing i'd definately buy as i find i'm using my iPhone more for photography now than any of my cameras. And i'd buy it in white if available but if not then black. I think they're both pretty universal colours. :)
